No, I'm saying that you should pay the relevant sales tax for the state you live in or have the wine shipped to (which usually are the same, but if not, the state to which it's shipped). Many online commerce companies do this now already. If they don't, and don't charge tax, them you're usually responsible for paying your home state's sales tax although it's rare that you'll get caught if you don't.Robert M yers wrote: ↑September 9th, 2019, 8:26 amSo your suggesting to pay the NY tax and then claim local taxes?AndrewH wrote: ↑September 9th, 2019, 6:28 amI think it's well beyond wine at this point - most major retailers are now collecting the sales tax of the state to which the online order is being shipped. Prior to Wayfair states were not able to collect that tax (or at least couldn't enforce their tax rules against out of state shippers with no in-state presence). Now they can.
So, what you should be paying is your state's sales tax on any shipments, wine or otherwise, to you.
No other online order besides wine charges tax from the purchased state, it’s all from the delivered to state.
Or will the correct answer to the tax man be, no I paid taxes already in NY you see. I purchased those online and took delivery via proxy in NY when I purchased them, the disclaimer told me so?
I’ve yet to hear anybody tell me outright that we now need to pay double tax or the opposite which is I’m cleared of local tax responsibilities because I’ve paid my taxes via a virtual purchase in another state.
